Feather FHS-10 on a GEM Razor?

I know most people want to do the opposite, use a GEM blade on the OneBlade, but can the other way around be done? Can I use a Feather Feather FHS-10 on a GEM razor like a Sabre? And is this blade any good? Or it's problem is with the Oneblade razor?
Are the GEM ptfe much better then the Feather?

I will get a Sabre soon and wish to know if they will fit. Are they one more option to try if work or it's not worth it?
 
I am sure you can't because the holes at the side are on the wrong height. The second thing is that the FHS-10 are crap, for me these are to aggressive on the first shave the second is okay and then they are finished, simply dull. Believe me they are not worth a try.

The dimensions aren't quite the same due to the FHS-10 having no spine, and also they are just a wee bit wider than the GEM. I put a GEM spine on a FHS-10 so I could try it in a Wilkinson Pall Mall razor that a Gem won't fit because the stops are too far apart. The Feather worked just fine in the Pall Mall.

I get anywhere from 6-8 shaves from a FHS-10 in any razor but the OneBlade Core; for whatever reason the Core doesn't seem to like the blades it was designed to accept. The Core is a mediocre instrument at best so it's not the blade's fault.

Spine or no spine, the FHS-10 won't fit in any Micromatic razor - it lacks the cutouts for the locking tabs.

You do have some flexibility within the GEM blade family - PFTE coated, uncoated, stainless, carbon. No wasted time questing for the One True Blade like the DE "maybe THIS one will be the ONE!" blade snipe hunt, which is a plus in my book. Forces you to work on your technique.

Dorco makes a GEM-style blade; it's pretty deeply steeped in terribility, so stay away.

I’m having good success with a honed FAS10, the carbon feathers in my OB Genesis. I’m on shave number three and it’s still feeling similar to the first one, or I forgot what that was like. A couple more shaves and I’ll swap in a new cutter and see how it feels. I KNOW the stainless feel like buttered glass on the first go. I’ll double check that as well, but I’m currently out of them….
